I have had asthma for about 2 years now along with being treated for allergies about ten years. Although I take all my meds, my symptoms are getting worse. I'm always getting colds, sinus infections, upper respiratory infections and can't spend much time outside because I easily become short of breath. My energy level has decreased. I spend most of my weekends at home just to avoid going outside and getting sick. Even doing routine housework, I become short of breath. Since I get migraines also, I don't eat any junk food or deserts (with the exception of frozen yogart). I am becoming very frustrated because of the continued worsening of my condition. I am 52 years old and live in S. Florida. Do other people experience similiar symptoms and limitations? Does anyone take steriods on a long term basis?
I take Advar 250/50 2 x day, singular, allermyst, D-Allergy (decongestant), topomax (to avoid migraines) and xanax.
